Cleanin’ Up The Town is a Ghostbusters retrospective over a decade in the making!
Way back in 2016, a brother and sister production team started a crowdfunding campaign in order to complete a documentary that they had been working on. We originally reported on that story here.
Anthony and Claire Bueno had been working for nearly a decade to create a retrospective documentary on the creation of both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.
This project has lead them all over the US where they have been interviewing everyone involved in the production of these films including the late Harold Ramis. The only noticeable exception was understandably Bill Murray who declined to partake in the production.
The crowdfunding was a success (as a huge fan you know I chucked some money their way!) and over the last three years, we have been eagerly awaiting any news on the documentary.
One of the biggest surprises was that they had collected so much interview and behind the scenes material that the documentary was to be split into two, one for each film.
I’m pleased to say that the first documentary, Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters has been completed and found distribution. It has already been shown as part of several film festivals around the world and will hold its UK premiere next month on December 3rd in London. (Tickets are still available from the BFI.)
For those of us who can’t make this screening, I’m happy to report that Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters will be available to stream on the 27th of January next year through various VOD services.
Anthony and Claire Bueno have also stated on their Facebook page that they are trying to organise more UK screenings around the country. As with the original Kickstarter project, this will be available on Blu-ray at a later date.
